“A lovely spot for a romantic getaway”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

I booked an overnight package that included dinner and breakfast for my husband's recent birthday. We often stay at Ontario's Finest Inns, and the Elm Hurst is a member inn that we had never visited (I believe they recently rejoined that group). The inn rooms are nicely appointed and very spacious and comfortable, though not as charming as some places we've stayed. The food, however, was excellent, as was the service. The staff were lovely. And the cost was very reasonable. And the grounds of the inn were incredibly beautiful. It was hard to believe we were a stone's throw from the 401 Highway. It felt as though we were tucked away in some idyllic postcard setting. I, like some other reviewers, find it hard to believe we've never been here before. It's a beautiful gem, very close to everything in Southern Ontario.

My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary. It was the second time we've stayed here for our anniversary in fact. Everything was fine and the staff was very friendly. Our dinner was perfect. The only complaint we have is that the A/C unit was extremely noisy. Every time it kicked in it was like a jet was flying low overhead, waking us both up. I turned it off but within half an hour it was just too stuffy to bear. We didn't get a very good night sleep.

Just spent one night and 2 days at this amazing venue. Can't beleive we have never been here before. What a well kept treasure! The staff is courteous, friendly and professional. The rooms were clean, comfortable and large. The bathrooms were gorgeous! The Sunday brunch was one of the BEST brunches we have ever been to! The price was very affordable, the food was fantastic and the service was also superb! There are several stations set up in different rooms. There are crisp white linens on the table and the service is white glove as well. The mimosas we were given were a pleasant surprise. We will definitely be back for this brunch!
The property is well maintained and the fountains are beautiful. We also went to the spa and had manicures, pedicures and massages. The Spa was literally across the hallway from our friend's room. They also provided a variety of teas, water, fruit and granola bars free of charge at the Spa.The hot tub was a nice treat as well.
There are several patios where one can sit and enjoy a drink, play cards, read or do whatever. We also sat in the front lounge which was very nicely decorated and extremely comfortable. I can imagine how cosy it would be there in the winter with the fireplace going!
Overall the weekend was fantastic and we will be back to the Elm Hurst Inn for sure!

Room Tip: I don't think there is a bad room here!

Having passed this venue a number of times, we finally had a reason to stay: to celebrate my mother's 80th birthday. Throughout all the initial planning, Erin was extremely helpful in making the arrangements for the dinner and the accommodations. Once we arrived, some of the party had the opportunity to not only have an extraordinary dining experience, but were able to also take advantage of the other services (the spa, accommodations, breakfast buffet.)

The dinner was the highlight of the stay. The food was fantastic (with a special mention of the Victorian Oxford County Gunn's Hill Artisan Cheese & Upper Canada Ale Soup--be sure to try thie), and the service was outstanding. Despite being a very busy day (three wedding parties were also being hosted), we felt like we were the only people there. Dianne stood out as a highly professional and friendly server, who was highly attentive to everyone. Thank you so much for making that evening so special for my mother!

The rooms were spacious, clean and tastefully decorated. My mother and my wife both enjoyed the spa experience, and found the staff there to be very friendly. The morning breakfast buffet was just want we needed before getting back on the road to return home.

Overall, this was a perfect venue for such a celebration. In addition to being a lovely setting, the service and value was excellent. We hope to be back there again soon!

We spent the night here prior to a weekend in Stratford. Dinner was great, as were the accommodations. The staff at both the inn and restaurant were very friendly and helpful. The complementary breakfast was great. Will probably be a while before we are in the area again, but will try to book again, if and when we are. Just can't forget the Pear and Watercress Soup!

My friend and I, who have known each other for 65 years, meet here every June to catch up on our lives. We always choose a Tuesday as that is seniors' day. We are never disappointed with the food, the service and the ambience. Today was no exception. We felt that the food was delicious, especially the roast beef which was tender and tasty. The salads were varied and fresh, and the desserts tasted as yummy as they looked. We enjoyed being outside and walking around the grounds taking pictures of the fountains and the flowers. God willing, we'll be back again next June.

We have often enjoyed a special celebration dinner at Elmhurst but to-day we planned on brunch - it was fantastic !

We had reserved a 10:30 table for 4 to share a few more hours with our good friends that had spent the previous evening with us in London, we were some of the first guests. The layout was overflowing with a variety of fruits, pastries, waffles, made to order omelettes, lots of salads, smoked salmon, herring, shrimp, sausage, bacon, home fires, scrambled eggs, beef craved from the roast - so much to choose from, and that is just the first course. The dessert buffet was just as varied, with tortes, pies, squares, tarts, crepes, chocolate fountain - and all this topped off with a tall glass of mimosa - the meal was wonderful, the service great - what value for the $25. per person price.

Room Tip: We asked for a table in between the two buffet areas as one of our party walks with a little difficu...
